Facing Drug Charges?
There’s hope-even if it’s your first, second or third offense.
While you might be feeling desperate right now, wondering if you’ll lose your job, or perhaps lose custody of your children, or even worse — serve time behind bars, it’s important to realize that police officers, prosecutors and federal agents make mistakes all the time.
This is precisely why you should never just plead guilty.
Because it’s these mistakes that we can use to build a strong defense to fight your drug charges.
You see, the facts and evidence surrounding your case could result in reduced fines, penalties, and or jail time. Or It could mean that your drug charges are dropped altogether.
Now, you might be thinking, but I already have a court date, a limited amount of time, and I need a drug defense lawyer who can act fast. In most cases that’s not a problem.
With three (3) drug defense attorneys on staff, we routinely represent people with an upcoming court date and a limited amount of time to retain an attorney.
What if I’m unsure of what to look for in an attorney?
It’s a valid question. There’s no shortage of drug defense lawyers in the lowcountry, so choosing one that’s the best fit for you can be a challenge.
But consider this first, the defense attorneys at Templeton Mims & Ward are all former assistant solicitors, and as such we’ve worked on both sides of drug cases.
We’ve prosecuted people just like you, who are facing drug charges, and now we defend people just like you, who are facing drug charges.
But most importantly, we understand how the opposition thinks and works and we leverage that understanding to your benefit.
Why Fight Your Drug Charges?
Apart from heavy fines, penalties and potential jail time, if convicted of a drug crime your entire future will likely be negatively affected, and that’s what you want to avoid.
A conviction could affect your current and future employment opportunities, ability to find housing, child custody or visitation, education and scholarship opportunities, and so much more.
Last but not least, if you think all hope is lost because you have a public defender or can’t afford a private drug defense attorney we would encourage you to contact us anyway. You never know what’s possible until we discuss the details surrounding your case.
